2022 Ceremonial First Pitch

On June 2, Major League Baseball held the second annual Lou Gehrig Day, honoring the Hall of Fame New York Yankees first baseman.

A huge victory for the entire ALS community, this campaign helps raise awareness of ALS and shine a spotlight on families living with the disease. The Lou Gehrig Day campaign builds upon the great relationships that many of our chapters have with their local teams.

Lou Gehrig Day festivities were put on hold in Cleveland after a rainout postponed the game. It was rescheduled for June 28. Check out video from the game featuring Marc Williams, a person living with ALS, participate in the Ceremonial First Pitch: Lou Gehrig Day 2022.
